Koi is my life. I am not only a breeder of Koi, but I am fascinated by these beautiful creatures of nature. 

The following is some of the articles on the subject of Koi keeping I have written, collected or co-produced over the years. Some answers to FAQ's are also listed.

International travelers of the Koi net beware! You should always be mindful of applying whatever you read to your situation. Local conditions play an important part in the design and functioning of pond ecosystems. And also, some countries have archaic and confusing systems for weights and volumes. Whenever you read of gallons or pounds or worse, drops per pint, beware

(Unless indicated otherwise,  the following was written within a South African context, using the metric system for weights and volume.)
